India Capital Growth : IGC

India Capital Growth was established to take advantage of long term investment opportunities in companies based in India. Investments are predominantly made into listed companies through a subsidiary in Mauritius. The objective is to provide long term capital appreciation by investing predominantly in listed mid and small cap companies with a smaller proportion in unlisted companies.  Investments may also be made in large cap Indian companies where the Fund Manager believes long-term capital appreciation will be achieved.  The Company may hold liquid assets (including cash) pending deployment in suitable investments.  It is the Company’s declared policy not to hedge the exposure to the Indian Rupee.
